Virginia’s Leesburg Executive Airport will be receiving a second FBO by early 2021. The yet-to-be-named facility currently under construction on the east side of the airport by Kuhn Aviation features a three-story, 4,000-sq-ft terminal with private passenger lounge, shower facilities, pool table, pilots lounge, conference room, and parking garage.

An adjoining, fully climate-controlled 25,000-sq-ft hangar will be able to accommodate the latest flagship business jets such as the Bombardier Global 7500 and the under-development Gulfstream G700. Plans for a second phase of construction include an additional 100,000 sq ft of hangars on the south and west sides of the airport also capable of sheltering the big bizjets.

The company has already selected Shell distributor Titan Aviation Fuels as the supplier of its planned fuel farm, which will have a capacity of 20,000 gallons of jet-A and 12,000 gallons of 100LL.

“We wanted to build a facility to support our growing aircraft management business and offer our clients a level of privacy and customer service that is difficult to find in the Washington, D.C., and Northern Virginia region,” company president Scott Kuhn told AIN. “With very little private investment historically into existing facilities, Leesburg Executive Airport has needed a competitive environment for a long time. We’re looking forward to serving our customers and the continuation of a successful project.”
